Super Simple Pork Stew

I love a stew. They are so easy and last for days. While I like trying new flavours and different ingredients in my stews and casseroles, sometimes, you just want something really basic that you can throw in a pan and leave for a few hours. Even without any added spices or flavours, a Simple Pork Stew is gorgeous. The perfect mid-week winter meal.

A Simple Pork Stew is also fantastic if you are shopping on a budget or trying to save a little money. I bought this pack of diced pork from Asda for £2.99, and the rest of the ingredients cost pennies. It’s also huge, and will easily feed all four of us for two nights with a bit of bread for dipping.

To be honest, my Simple Stews are normally beef. But, it’s what Michael wanted for dinner, and Pork’s what we had in. It was perfect. After bubbling away for a few hours, the meat melts in your mouth.

Crumble in the stock cubes and stir thoroughly.

Leave your Simple Pork Stew on the hob to simmer for at least an hour, but really, the longer, the better. Just check it occasionally and add more water if needed.

Close Served Stew

That’s it, a Super Simple Pork Stew that everyone will love, with barely any effort at all. The hardest part is peeling the vegetables. Any leftovers can be kept in a covered tub in the fridge for a couple of days, or frozen for up to a month. Just make sure you reheat until the Pork is exceptionally hot all the way through, by simmering on the hob, adding a little more water if needed. If your kids are anything like mine, you may also need to add a few more carrots because they’ve all been eaten!
